The position of unconventional trademark in the Indian trademark regime is rigid and rigorous. There is a need for the law to catch up with modern marketing techniques that use colors, shapes, scents and sounds to make their product distinctive.Visual perceptibility should not be and is not a sine qua non for building brand association in the minds of the consumers, thus non-conventional trademarks which do fulfill the purpose of trademark should receive trademark protection.

CORPORATE LENIENCY AND EFFICACY


Corporate Leniency or Corporate Amnesty or Corporate Immunity program refers to a policy by which a firm is not criminally charged for the activity being reported. The strategy is used to eradicate and prevent cartel activity which harms the economy at large. Cartels are some damaging form of anti-competitive agreements often resulting in price increases that are harmful to consumers of goods or services. Leniency programmes are designed to give incentives to cartel members to take the initiative to approach the competition authority, confess their participation in a cartel and aid the competition law enforcers. Effective leniency programmes are aimed at creating a race among conspirators to disclose their conduct to enforcers, in some instances, even before an investigation has begun, and to quickly crack cartels that may have otherwise gone undetected.
